City to Host Symposium on Dangers of Marijuana Use Among Teens

August 11, 2015

The City of Santa Clarita will host The Immature Teen Brain on Pot symposium on Wednesday, August 26, at 6 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Activities Center. The City’s annual hard-hitting drug awareness event will include a panel of local experts and a resource fair for parents, teens and members of the community.

Teen Brain on Pot PostCard Front 2015

Simply because marijuana can be deemed ‘legal’ with a prescription, this does not make it safe or smart. This common misconception can lead to other drug experimentation and unsafe behaviors. It is not uncommon to see teens stop the maturing process when they start smoking marijuana. Many of the City’s community partners who work in the field of drug rehabilitation and counseling have expressed that it is not uncommon to have a client that began their drug use with marijuana.

The symposium will cover valuable information to help parents protect and educate their children about the short term and long term mental and physical effects of smoking marijuana. The program’s panel of local experts at this year’s event will include a law enforcement representative from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department, a drug recovery expert from Action Family Counseling, a family support resource from A Light of Hope, a physician from Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital and an education administrator from Hart School District. Mayor Marsha McLean and the City’s City Manager, Ken Striplin will also be in attendance.
